Item description for Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview by Meredith G. Kline...

As intimated by the subtitle, Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview, the immediate literary focus of this study is the book of Genesis and its account of the formative ages in the eschatological movement of the kingdom of God from creation to consummation. As also indicated by the subtitle, our biblical-theological commentary on Genesis is designed to uncover the foundations of God's covenantally administered kingdom with its major historical developments and its institutional structures and functions. In this way Kingdom Prologue seeks to provide an introductory sketch of the overall shape of the biblical worldview and the character of biblical religion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview?

Awesome stuff  Aug 17, 2008
Both as a book on biblical theology and covenant theology this is indispensable. It is one of the best exegetical treatments of covenant around and also demonstrates lucidly that Genesis 1-12 provides a real seed bed for the rest of the Bible's story line.
phenomenal!!!!  Sep 18, 2006
a bit of a difficult book to plow through, but absolutely worth every effort. Simply a mind-blowing tour of redemptive history. If you are serious about grasping the "deeper" things of biblical truth, this is a heavy weight book that must be reckoned with.
One of the best books out there on Genesis  Jan 6, 2006
As a (starting out) seminary student, I find that there are many books out there on the subject of Genesis...from all kinds of points of views, from the strong 24-hour to theistic evolution. I myself am a literalist, in that I feel the Bible is a literal message of God to us written throughout Genesis through Revelation. But I am humble enough to admit that even I get lost in the shuffle of books that surround me, especially those dealing with the Old Testament. That is why I wish to tell anyone and everyone that if you need one book on Genesis, this book by Kline is the best one out there IMO (I would also suggest How to Read Genesis, which is also an A+ book, but should be read after Kline's). Kline goes into detail not in terms of whether or not it was 24 hours, or whatnot, but instead explores the meaning and the theology and (redemptive) history behind Genesis. You could say that Kline helps one to look at it through the eyes of the entire Bible, along with the culture at the time of Moses' writings of Genesis and the other books that make up the Torah. We must realize that the Bible was not written to battle Evolution, which I believe is false but that is beside the point, nor was it written in the eyes of how we today in the 21st century view historical writing. Instead, you might say, Kline helps you study and understand Genesis in such a way that you are given the understanding (and much much more) of Genesis through the eyes of those that Moses would have read it to, along with later generations of those Jews who would hold faith in God, leading up to Jesus Christ, the very image of God. If you want a better understanding of Genesis, if you want something that will help you through seminary studies and in the long run, you must find this book and keep it and treasure it.
Enriching & Challenging  Nov 14, 2004
This book by Kline is a wonderful commentary on the first chanpters of Genesis. Kline's background in Ancient Near Eastern Studies gives him special insight into the meaning of many of the peculiar phrasings in Genesis. Read this book if you want to be edified in your faith, or just want to learn more about the God of the Bible.
Mind blowing  Nov 12, 2003
Although this book is available for free online in .pdf format, books are forever. Meredith Kline's understanding of the Bible includes his Fiat/fulfillment theory, which has greatly increased my understanding of many aspects of theology, and not just creation. Buy this book if you want to learn.
